Gingrich, Kelly Battle It Out Over Trump

Gingrich, Kelly Battle It Out Over Trump

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich has told Fox News host Megyn Kelly she is “fascinated with sex” amid criticism of her coverage of sexual misconduct accusations against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The heated exchange came Tuesday night on Kelly’s program. Kelly responded to Gingrich’s comment with a chuckle and asked, “really?” She went on to say she’s “not fascinated by sex,” but is “fascinated by the protection of women” and added that she had a responsibility to cover the accusations.

Megyn Kelly Grills DNC Chair Donna Brazile Over Leaked Debate Question

Megyn Kelly Grills DNC Chair Donna Brazile Over Leaked Debate Question

One of the most incriminating things to turn up in all of John Podesta’s leaked emails is a message sent by Donna Brazile with the subject, “From time to time I get the questions in advance.” As I wrote last week, the content of the message was a detailed question about the death penalty which Hillary was asked during a CNN townhall event the following day. Brazile denied having any of the questions in advance but co-host Roland Martin, who actually asked Clinton the question, refused to rule out having sent Brazile an advance copy of the question. Wednesday night, Fox News Megyn Kelly pressed Brazile on where she got the question and result was an awkward several minutes of television. After asking Brazile about the James O’Keefe tapes, Kelly turned to the email and the question provided in advance. “You were accused of receiving a debate question before a CNN townhall, where they partnered with TVOne…and that you had this question on March 12th that verbatim, verbatim was provided by Roland Martin to CNN the next day,” Kelly asked. “I did not receive any questions from CNN?” Brazile replied. “Where did you get it?” Kelly asked. At this point, Brazile tried to dodge saying, “Well, first of all, what information are you providing to me that will allow me to see what you’re talking about?” Kelly then restated the facts again based on the Wikileaks document. “Where did you get it,” Kelly asked again.

Reporters Are Donating To The Clinton Campaign Like Crazy

Reporters Are Donating To The Clinton Campaign Like Crazy

Hundreds of journalists donated more than $396,000 to 2016 presidential campaigns—but less than four percent of that money went to support Donald Trump, the Center for Public Integrity says in a new report published today.

In total, Clinton received roughly $382,000 in campaign contributions from about 430 people who work in journalism. The Trump campaign, in contrast, received just $14,000.

Prominent Clinton supporters include Larry King and Anna Wintour, as well as writers and editors for the New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Elle.

Several New York Times employees have given to the Clinton and Sanders campaigns, even though the publication’s ethics handbook prohibits such contributions from staff because of “a great risk of feeding a false impression that the paper is taking sides.”

CNN Blames Trump For Firebombing Of GOP Office

CNN Blames Trump For Firebombing Of GOP Office

Horrible news broke Sunday afternoon as details emerged of the vicious firebombing of the Orange County GOP Head Quarters in North Carolina. Nobody was killed in the attack, which is being described as a “political terrorism,” although the office itself was lost. According to authorities “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” was spray-painted on a building close to the attack, but that didn’t stop CNN’s Brian Stelter from concluding Donald Trump’s “over heated the rhetoric” was what caused the attack.

During a segment on CNN’s Newsroom, the panel Stelter was on was discussing the recent series of death threats being received by an Arizona newspaper. “So the Arizona Republic getting so many death threats over an endorsement is an example of how over heated the rhetoric is,” Stelter then pivoted, “Another example out of North Carolina today, the firebombing of a local GOP office.”

We have no idea who has done this. We don’t know if it’s a Republican, a Democrat, a movement. No idea. Could be some core of extremists, some sort of radical,” Stelter rambled on. But according to a report by The Hill, two hours before Stelter was on air, authorities found the graffiti labeling local Republicans as Nazis. That’s not really a term Republicans like to call each other oddly enough, it’s usually a term flung by the left.

But that kind of action is unacceptable,” Stelter stated before setting his sights on Trump. “And we need to have the temperature come down on all sides right now,” he opined, “Unfortunately, Donald Trump is the lead in terms of raising the temperature at this moment in time.
